As we approach Sept, let me just publicly declare: I’m all onboard with the spooks. Murder mysteries, ghost stories, what have you. BUT. My main focus is still an engaging, funny voice and an examination of some kind of culture (geographic, hobby, sport, familial, etc.) 👻 #MSWL

Just finished HELLO GIRLS, and hot damn, can I get a hard #MSWL for badass friends who give a biiiiig middle finger to the patriarchy and choose each other over everything else? A side of murdering abusive men is always welcome on this menu 🤷🏻‍♀️

#MSWL: I want a #YA about a girl gamer. What’s it mean to prove your place there? SF element a lá READY PLAYER ONE is cool too (but not necessary).

Is it too much for my #YA #MSWL to just consist of spooky but funny retellings of the Headless Horseman ?

ULTIMATE #MSWL please someone give me an #ownvoices #Hmong #YA novel about immigration and the #SecretWar. We need this story, especially for teens. No more hidden history.

#BookExpo session on the future of publishing has me thinking about the importance of representing the people where you live. So on that note: #YA #MSWL featuring Hmong characters and info on the Secret War and ensuing refugee movement. Plus if it’s in the Twin Cities!

My #MSWL for today is snakes. That’s all, just snakes 🐍
